This is a highly subjective question. To me, his most memorable character was The Honourable Member for Kicking Horse Pass.

Maybe he came later, but I always thought it was Charlie Farquharson who went by the on-air name of Don Harron, perhaps his first public usage of the name he was born with.

I suspect Radiofan has it right. I checked dates and Peter was already doing 90 in 1976. And Don Harron didn't start Morningside until 1977.

jon gets points for the answer my quiz asked for BUT

here is another version of the truth

After Peter moved to TV - During the summer of 1975, the show was replaced by a program called Sunny Days.

On September 30, 1975, Judy LaMarsh hosted her own show in the same time slot 9AM to 12 Noon daily, called Judy until April 9, 1976. (Judy moved to WX??)

During the summer of 1976, the show was replaced by a program called This Morning with different hosts such as Allan McFee, Hana Gartner, John O'Leary and Laurier LaPierre.

On September 20, 1976, the program was renamed Morningside, hosted by Don Harron.

After hosting 90 Minutes Live on CBC Television, Peter Gzowski returned to CBC radio as full time host of Morningside on September 6, 1982.
